COMIC REEL: Amell Says Next “Arrow”/”Flash” Event Will Be “Even Bigger”; “Deadpool” Begins Filming In March

ARROW

While speaking with Collider, “Arrow” lead Stephen Amell revealed that his character will not be resurrected via Ra’s al Ghul’s Lazarus Pit, as many fans have theorized.

“That’s not something that’s going to be used for Oliver,” said Amell of the life-restoring pit before teasing that fans have already “seen a Lazarus Pit” on “Arrow.

Amell also touched upon future crossovers between “Arrow” and its sister show “The Flash.” “I think that the cross-over was a new experience,” said Amell. “I thought that they were two of the best scripts that either show has ever put forward. The logistical elements of it were something that we had to figure out, as we moved along, but I think that everybody did a great job, and that future cross-overs will be even bigger and better and smoother.”

Co-star Colton Haynes talked about stepping into the spotlight as Arsenal in Oliver Queen’s absence in an interview with CBR.

“[Arsenal’s] still dealing — he’s not sure if he’s pissed off that this happened,” said Haynes of his character. “He is very emotional when it comes to that because he lost a mentor and he lost a friend. And he really has to step up, and he isn’t really ready to. So he’s going on his own ventures, as it is, trying to figure out if anything that anyone’s saying is true or not. It’s almost like having too many cooks in the kitchen. It’s a vote every time we have to do something, so that’s kind of frustrating. And at the same time, no one really listens to each other. They all have their own ideas of how they want to do things. But it is nice because it creates a team with everybody, and everyone goes off the hinges once this happens. He is the linchpin of the entire show and the entire team, so once he’s gone, everyone goes a little batshit crazy, yeah.”

Returns January 21 on the CW

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

In an interview with Comic Book Resources, actor Edward James Olmos dropped a hint regarding the character he will play in upcoming episodes of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

“Well, I’ll just put it to you this way: When he smiles, the whole world smiles with him,” said Olmos, revealing as much as he can about his mysterious role. The actor also revealed that he is scheduled to appear on “between three to five/six shows.”

Returns in March on ABC

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

JoBlo has posted what appears to be promotional art for the upcoming DC film depicting Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman. All three images have been seen in some form before; this promo image just ties them all together.

Batman-News has found an interview with fight coordinator Guillermo Grispo originally conducted Spanish website Los Andes Diario. Grispo’s translated comments about the showdown between Superman and Batman can be read below.

“Look, at Warner Bros., they are very strict, so I can’t say much, but it’s no surprise if I say Batman and Superman come face-to-face in the movie,” said Grispo. “It’s one of the most important sequences and I was actively involved in the design of the fight: the exchange of punches and the physical movement were put together with my partner Ryan Watson. There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that the other [Superman] will squash him like a bug. But when you see the movie, and how it all comes out, there’s a very intelligent explanation as to why they would have a firsthand confrontation though it seems to be totally to Batman’s disadvantage.”

DEADPOOL

FABLES

Spinoff has an interview with “Harry Potter” and “Paddington” producer David Heyman where he gives an update on the “Fables” feature film.

“[‘X-Men: First Class’ and ‘Kick-Ass’ screenwriter] Jane Goldman is working on a draft as we speak,” said Heyman. “Nik Arcel is attached [to direct]. He did a draft, and now he’s supervising Jane, who’s doing a draft. Hoping that it’ll come in and we’ll be able to move to the next stage. All these things always take longer than you want. And ‘Fables’ is not easy, by any means, but I think it’ll be pretty great.”

THE FLASH

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, “Flash” star Grant Gustin discussed Barry Allen’s mindset following his encounter with Reverse-Flash.

“Barry is still defending [Tom Cavanagh’s Harrison] Wells and still trusting of Wells at this point,” said Gustin, clarifying that the Flash is unaware of Wells’ double life as Reverse-Flash. Gustin said that there’s “still more to find out” about the man in the yellow suit. “There’s a big twist that even surprised me. I’ve seen all the predictions online. No one has predicted the big twist that’s coming at the end of this season.”

When we next see Barry in tonight’s midseason premiere, Gustin says that “he’s trying to get faster and not just straight up speed, but his agility and maneuvering within it and what he can do with this speed. He has a bar set. He has to be at least as fast as the Reverse Flash. That’s what he wants to focus on, but as per usual, other things start to get in the way and Barry has to focus on other things.”

In other Reverse-Flash news, “Flash” concept artist John Gallagher recently revealed early promotional artwork of the villain that he whipped up ahead of the villain’s debut.

Airs Tuesdays on the CW

GOTHAM

You can check out a recap of last night’s episode, “What the Little Bird Told Him,” over on Spinoff. Following last night’s episode, Fox has begun airing promos for next week’s episode, “Welcome Back, Jim Gordon.”

New addition Morena Baccarin spoke to CBR about her new role as Dr. Leslie Thompkins on “Gotham.” “She gets her fair share of being part of the action,” said Baccarin. “I’m not, like, beating people up, but she is not shy about seeing dead bodies or being around a crime scene and sort of wanting to — she’s very interested and curious to know how [Jim] solves a crime and just kind of wants to be around for that and everything. I think what makes that relationship work is that she’s not afraid of seeing things and being around corruption and the darkness of Gotham.”
